“Life is always full of surprises. Today, I will tell you a story that happened in Eastern Europe some years ago, in faraway Romania. It was July 2006; the summer vacations had arrived. Elenora Mardare had promised her grandchildren that if they got good grades, she would take them to the place where they had always dreamed of going.
In fact, it had been a long time since they had left home. You see, life was not easy for the lady. Since living with her grandchildren, she did everything she could to provide for them and give them the best. Sometimes she even had to work in the fields to make ends meet and save up.
It turns out that fate for her and her grandchildren was really cruel. Four years ago, the woman buried her daughter and son-in-law who unfortunately had an incident while they were sleeping. It turns out that the man and the woman went to a cabin where they would celebrate one more year of marriage.
The place was perfect for a couple; everything was fine. The dinner the wife made was delicious; however, apparently, they had a few too many drinks and fell asleep without realizing that a fire had spread. According to investigators, the culprits were lit candles. Both died of asphyxiation, which, of course, was terrible news that shocked the town. The daughter and her husband could not escape and consequently lost their lives.
Since then, the grandmother was forced to take care of her grandchildren as there was no one else to take care of them. At that time, Anna, the oldest, was six years old, and Sebastian, the youngest, was only three years old.
That was how time went by. Finally, the woman finished packing the suitcases, and they hurried to the train station. After many hours of traveling, they arrived at the place. Now the children were very happy on the seashore.
Every day, they splashed and sunbathed. The two weeks of vacation passed very quickly, so that in two days, they would have to return to their village in the east of the country, where they only had a small house.
Unfortunately, there was no money left on the parent side, only a car that the grandmother had to sell to pay for the damage done to the cottage. And even then, it did not finish that debt. They didn’t own a house either, since the one they had was rented.
Even though shortly before his death, the son-in-law inherited a large amount of money from his father, for some reason, the man’s bank accounts were empty. To find out what happened, Eleonora had to wait for her grandchildren to come of age so they could investigate on their own or pay a lawyer.
But money was tight, so she had to raise the little ones on her limited pension. As it was to be the last day of vacation, Grandma and the children went to visit one of the busiest beaches in the area that they had not yet visited. As usual, the grandchildren were having fun by the water, and Eleanor watched them lovingly.
Sebastian and his sister had now just finished building a sandcastle when suddenly, looking to the side, the girl was stunned, eyes wide open. She ran to her grandmother, “Grandma, Grandma, look, it’s Mom and Dad!” she said, pointing to a young couple with her hand, amazed.
The old woman looked where the granddaughter was pointing and almost fainted. She could not believe it; she immediately recognized her daughter. But the son-in-law looked a little different. Surprised, she didn’t know what to do. She even cried with emotion. So she told her grandchildren that she would soon come.
In fact, she had met some women earlier who also had their children, and she asked them as a favor to take care of her grandchildren while she went out for a while. “Children, I’ll be back in a bit,” the woman told her. That is how she went after the couple because she did not know if they only had a physical resemblance or if something supernatural was going on. She knew it was inappropriate to go any closer without being completely sure that it was really them.
In the meantime, the couple arrived at a large house next to the beach and then disappeared inside without hesitation. The woman called the police, then returned for her grandchildren, and they sat down to wait. Four years before these events, a couple was enjoying a moment together in a cabin in the woods.
It was Sylvia and Daniel, but there was someone else. It was Alex, the man’s twin brother. The man had been released from prison where he spent several years of his life. Alex was very rebellious since he was younger. He got involved with bad people and ended up behind bars, finally taking his mother to the grave of so many worries.
Thus, the father, who was a businessman, left all his money to his other son. Daniel was the complete opposite of his brother; it was even hard to believe that the two were related. Unlike Alex, Daniel had absolutely no bad habits.
He graduated from school and college with honors, getting a job in a village as the head of several farm fields. There he met his future wife, Sylvia, who works picking vegetables. Of course, for the woman, Daniel was not the kind of man she was looking for, but he was an excellent match for the future because he had great potential and would certainly achieve great success in life. In addition, at his young age, he was already managing several farms.
On the other hand, at Sylvia’s home, there was not a good relationship with her mother. Although she tried to guide her on the right path with wise advice and education, the young girl ignored her and only wished madly for an independent life away from her progenitor. She was truly rebellious.
Daniel looked at her, and her beauty really captivated him. She was very slender and beautiful. He was a very serious young man, but he attended to her. He would start talking to her, invite her to lunch, she would accept. He even brought her flowers every day, wrote her poetry, and made endless gifts to please her. He was really a thoughtful gentleman.
One day she gave up, of course not because she fell in love with him, but because she discovered that the boy had a very large apartment where she could finally hide from her mother’s morals. A few months later, the young people were married. Mrs. Eleanora was incredibly happy, believing that her daughter had finally come to her senses and became more responsible.
Since she really liked her son-in-law, he was a very educated man. Now it seemed that life would go on just as she had dreamed it would. Of course, Sylvia began to have a life like never before. She bought dresses, met with refined people, they rented a big house, got a new car, and she behaved very well with her husband. In fact, she gave him two wonderful children. She was a responsible and decent wife.
Until Daniel’s brother appeared. His life was not so good in prison, and while he was looking for a job, he saw the news that his father had died, leaving some business and his savings. So he decided to return home to make a profit. But he soon found out that the only heir was his brother, and he was living somewhere else. So he went there to face him. When she opened the door, Sylvia was simply stunned. Standing in the doorway was the spitting image of her husband, only much fitter.
“I liked this kind of guy better than a nerd like Daniel,” she thought.
Without asking Alex’s permission, he entered the house and, leaning back in a chair, began to speak. “Hello, dear. You must be my brother’s wife. I think you’re a little surprised by our resemblance. Did he never tell you about me? Well, fear not; we’re only twins.” Of course, Alex was a rare daredevil, and the woman definitely liked that.
That behavior fascinated her, and she didn’t realize how, but after talking for a few minutes, she found herself in the man’s arms. She even forgot that her husband would be coming any minute.
She gave him the food she had prepared for her husband. However, in a moment of decency or perhaps out of fear of being found, the woman realized she was not doing the right thing, so she decided to throw her brother-in-law out of the house.
After all that had happened, Alex changed his mind about seeing his brother. Now his interest was focused on the woman. She was a very curvaceous young woman; she didn’t seem to have two children. He thought, “One day he went to his brother’s house again. ‘You know, I didn’t think, Sylvia, that you could get into my head so quickly.
I saw your wonderful eyes and your lips. I realized that you are the girl of my dreams, and yet such a treasure belongs to my fool of a brother. Is it fair?’ ‘Of course, it isn’t, but what are you suggesting?’ ‘That I should divorce Daniel? No way; I’ll be completely penniless. His father left him enough money; he has them in the bank and wants to buy a house in the capital. Or rather, a mansion for us. I will finally leave this filthy town,’ answered the woman while pouring herself a glass of wine.
Hearing her words, a nasty look appeared in Alex’s eyes. He came up with a perverse plan. You see, he was not in love with Sylvia, but the obsession he had for her and the thirst for revenge for his brother, whom he blamed for his unfortunate life, whom he took away the affection of his parents, made him offer the woman a terrible idea.
And she accepted without even thinking about her children. One afternoon, Sylvia asked her husband to go to a cabin she had rented near a lake in the forest to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They went there, leaving the children with their grandmother. Daniel was really happy because for a long time, he and his wife had not been together in nature.
But if only the poor man knew that these were the last moments of his life, he would not be so happy. Little did he know that Sylvia had ground up several sleeping pills and mixed them into his wine glass. Daniel drank and then passed out.
She immediately called Alex, who arrived in a rented car and, together with the woman, grabbed him by the arms and plunged him into the lake so that he would suffocate. Just for a moment, the wife felt a little pity because she was taking not only the life of her husband, with whom she lived a little more than seven years, but also the father of her children. But the cheerful words of her lover consoled the woman. ‘Now we are free, you and I.’
Shortly after, the man took the body of a woman out of the trunk of the car. She had a great physical resemblance to Sylvia. In fact, that victim was a street drunk who had a relationship with Alex in the city, and he sent her money to travel into town with a story that he missed her. ‘I think I did her a big favor,’ said the guy.
And this one, having placed his brother on the bed and the homeless woman next to him, they sprinkled gasoline on the place and set it on fire to make it all look like an accident in which Daniel died together with his wife. In fact, Sylvia took the victim’s ID. Then they took all the money out of Daniel’s account and went to the sea, buying there a big house with a swimming pool and a breathtaking view.
But the truth sooner or later will always come out. The woman could not look her children in the eye when the police took her away in handcuffs with Alex. She only whispered an apology, but there was no answer. The woman was loathed by her mother and children. Now it became easier for the grandmother and grandchildren because they managed to recover part of the money, as well as the house where the three of them moved to.
Now the grandmother and grandchildren will finally stop worrying about money. As you can see, the couple confessed to everything and were sentenced to a life sentence. Today, they are still serving their sentences.
Without a doubt, greed and ambition have become very big. It is sad to learn how money and property destroy several families. I hope you found this video useful. If so, don’t hesitate to give us a thumbs up and comment.”
